The state is planning to renovate Georgia’s Welcome Centers, including one south of Lavonia off Interstate 85 in Northeast Georgia. Revenues collected from a state program that offers businesses advertising along highway interchanges will pay for the work, officials have said. “We are extremely excited about the work and the ultimate positive image of Georgia that will be reflected in the completed projects,” said Sam Wellborn, who heads the State Transportation Board’s Gateways Committee.
